GNU gv 3.6.1 has been released today. It is available for download in
the GNU ftp, 

Changes on this release:

# New set of command line arguments. This solves the horrid bug on
  gv 3.6.0 that made such release nearly unusable. See the
  documentation for details about the new set of command line

# The "Reopen" entry on the File menu has been renamed to "Reload" in
  order to be coherent with the "Reload" button.

# The distributed package structure have been fixed, now conforming a
  legal GNU source package.

# The delete key now work as expected, that is, it deletes the next
  character rather the last character when typed on text entries.

# Dot files are not shown by default on file selection forms.

# If you try to open an empty file you get a coherent error

# New manual page
